New Trend in Academic Juvenile Publishing

The No Child Left Behind policy changed publishing when it first was implemented. Now the focus is shifting away from that and toward the Common Core.

This is a hot topic with publishers right now. The focus is on helping young readers gather facts and learn how to think.

This means that there is a renewed focus on nonfiction titles for young readers, particularly middle-grade chapter books. Publishers are looking for things that are fun to read, a little quirky, and especially things that don’t read like homework.

Have something that fits the bill? Dig it out…today! Hone your pitch to this new trend and fire it out!
